Personal Protection for Newsgathering

When the world needs to know what’s going on in danger zones and disease hotspots, newsgathering professionals are in the front line. We work closely with the news industry as well as organisations such as the International News Safety Institute (INSI), to provide training and practical help to reduce risks to the absolute minimum,

We have helped support journalists covering a diverse range of hazards abroad – from biological hazards (bird flu, Ebola, cholera) to toxic waste spills (Hungary), asbestos (Turkey), radiation (Fukushima) and potential nerve agent / chemical exposure (Iraq, Syria).

We are able to source and provide bespoke personal protective equipment (PPE) kits for almost every eventuality:

Examples of kit contents include any or all of the following items:

  • FFP3 Respirators (Facemasks)
  • Goggles
  • Eye care
  • Burns treatment / dressings
  • Protective coveralls (Tyvek or Tychem)
  • Overboots
  • Antiviral disinfectants
  • Sponge or spray bottles for the above
  • Nitrile gloves
  • Clinical waste bags
  • Alcohol gel handwash
  • Hard surface wipes
  • Transparent plastic pouches

We also supply Equipment Care packs consisting of antiviral disinfectant, alcohol wipes, and microfibre cleaning cloths.

We are able to supply news crews at special risk with antibiotics, antiviral agents, medical countermeasures, and a wide choice of other specialist supplies.

We have over 20 years of experience, and you can rely on us to understand the health needs of news crews, and to deliver a fully comprehensive service, tailored to meet your exact needs.

This is backed up by all the resources of an internationally-known specialist Travel Clinic: our massive stock of vaccines (including yellow fever), means that we never run out – even at times of national shortage.
